Kara went from tutus to tech. After pursuing a career as a professional ballerina, Kara moved back to her hometown of Nashville, TN to work as a music publicist. A life of pitching journalists and walking red carpets left her feeling unfulfilled and she made the switch to being a software engineer. Now, Kara has a passion for introducing others to this industry and showing them they can succeed.
Outside of work, Kara enjoys playing with her dogs - Maggie and Franklin, going to concerts and seeing a ballet whenever she can.
